  1. Hi, Share a pic of your car on one of our social media pages and you could win a great prize. As a specialist car insurance broker, Chris Knott Insurance works with many of the UK's car clubs, forums and enthusiast groups, insuring both classic cars and modern/modified vehicles. However, we don't often get to see the lovely cars that are so important to you and the car community. You can change all that and maybe win a prize in the process... This Summer we're inviting you to post a photo of your car on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram (whether you're a Chris Knott client or not) and show us what you've got. In return you'll have the chance to WIN a huge bundle of AutoFinesse car cleaning/detailing products - full details at https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/news/chris-knott-show-shine-competition-2019.html HOW TO ENTER It's really simple! Just post your pic on one of our social media pages. Here are the specific instructions for each of the 3 main platforms (all our accounts are @ChrisKnottIns): FACEBOOK INSTRUCTIONS: COMMENT "#ShowAndShine" on our post at the link below and ADD your car photo. Please LIKE our page and SHARE the post. https://www.facebook.com/ChrisKnottIns/videos/2023300087964199/ TWITTER INSTRUCTIONS: REPLY "#ShowAndShine" on our post at the link below and ADD your car photo. Please FOLLOW our page and RETWEET the post. https://twitter.com/ChrisKnottIns/status/1124334280652599298 INSTRAGRAM INSTRUCTIONS: Post your car pic ON YOUR OWN ACCOUNT and TAG @ChrisKnottIns in the picture itself. Then COMMENT using the tag #ShowAndShine. Please FOLLOW our account. CLOSING DATE Of course we'll be watching throughout and enjoying seeing your cars but after 31st August 2019 we'll start the shortlisting process to whittle down the entries to a final few for consideration.

  4. 5-star Defaqto GAP Cover from Chris Knott If a new car is on the cards you might be interested in protecting its value with either 'Return To Invoice GAP' or 'Finance GAP' cover. Chris Knott's combined RTI/Finance GAP Cover is 5-star Defaqto rated - meaning it has been independently assessed as providing the highest levels of cover. We're so confident you'll like it too that you can try it risk-free for 30 days. 100% money back guarantee During that time, if you decide for whatever reason it doesn't meet your needs, as long as you haven't made a claim you can request a full refund. THE KEY BENEFITS: - Top-up your motor insurance payout in the event of a total loss claim - Get back to the original invoice price or settle any outstanding finance/lease (whichever is greater) - For cars (and commercial vehicles under 3,500kg) upto 10 years old/100,000 miles - Covers vehicles valued right up to £180,000 - Unlimited claims coverage on cars upto £50,000 - 5-star Defaqto rating - the highest level possible - PCP/Contract Hire/Lease Hire - all acceptable - 30-day cooling-off period - Upto £250 of your motor excess refunded - Arrange cover upto 100 days after vehicle purchase Get a quote and buy online: https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/GAP You'll also get your money back if there is no gap following a total loss... That's right, you'll receive a full premium refund if your car is written-off or stolen and there's no shortfall between your motor insurer's payout and the invoice purchase price. This could arise, for example, where you buy a heavily discounted vehicle and the total loss comes before the vehicle has depreciated enough to create a gap. Cover the GAP today You can get a quote online risk-free or call us on 0800 917 2274 if you'd prefer to speak to someone. best, Nick PS. Don't just take our word for it - you can view the full Policy Wording or the more user-friendly Product IPID to see for yourself why Defaqto determined that the cover is one of the best on the market.
  5. More members set to benefit from Chris Knott service... Hi, Insurers have relaxed their rules under our car clubs and enthusiasts offering which means we should be able to help more of you get a better car insurance deal. We'll still be applying common sense to our quotes but there'll no longer be hard and fast minimum driver age restrictions on models. Instead we'll be assessing risks on a case by case basis - looking for relevant driver and vehicle experience. The Chris Knott scheme via this forum rewards safer drivers and we think there are more of you on the car club and enthusiasts scene than anywhere else in the UK. All drivers must have held a full UK licence for at least 3 years and have 2 years NCB to use (gained on the quoted vehicle or another that can be mirrored across inc. company car). We can now quote if you've had a fault claim as long as it was at least 12 months ago. Even if you have had a fault claim in the last 12 months, if the cost was under £2k we can still help. If you can comply with these few criteria, there's a strong chance that Chris Knott will be your best option for car insurance this year. Please put us to the test by calling 0800 917 2274 for a quote when your renewal falls due. Don't forget to mention this club/forum which will be your ticket to accessing this special car clubs and enthusiasts scheme. Alternatively, you can complete contact details at https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/CarQuote/?ref=crit19 and we'll call you. best, Nick

  9. Winter Tyres and Chris Knott Hi, I'm often asked on club forums (and Facebook groups) about switching to winter wheels/tyres and whether an insurer will charge extra if you do. As it's getting to that time of year again I thought I'd just reassure any Chris Knott clients that the insurers we use don't usually charge for this. However, if you are thinking of swapping your wheels we do have to log when you make the switch and then again when you go back to normal - so please let us know on 0800 917 2274. Thanks, Nick *** *** *** FEEDBACK "Been with them for years now. I check about every year but so far the best price, understanding of simple mods / winter wheels and cust service has been there every time. Very happy so far." Joanna Cole, New Mini Scotland "Excellent service when arranging insurance for 2 cars. As much as possible is done by email which is efficient..." Julian P, TrustPilot "Quick, simple and always matching prices with trustworthy insurances." Carla, TrustPilot "First class service. Cannot fault any of the service given, highly recommended." Paul H, TrustPilot "Continuing my annual insurance search, Chris Knott have beaten my (already cheap) renewal by 10% but I’m getting some really outrageous quotes. Most north of £500 and a few into 4 figures!" Steve Ingall, Alfabook

    Car club members save £115 on average against their existing insurance renewal by switching to club sponsor Chris Knott Insurance*. Find out how much you could save when you ask us to quote for your cherished club car (or indeed any of the cars in your household). And, if you REQUEST A QUOTE before 31/12/18, you'll gain automatic entry in our draw - https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/news/win-karcher-k2-pressure-washer-2018.html QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 (please mention your club/forum when you call to access the full member benefit). best, Nick *mean average saving against customers' existing renewal premiums where disclosed 01/01/18 to 31/10/2018. *** *** *** A nice testimonial that reflects the kind of service Chris Knott aims to offer: "Another happy (new) customer here! I wasn't happy with my Admiral renewal (even after haggling it down) and after quick Money Supermarket comparison I could see that there were between 10-15 companies all coming back with prices (up to £110) less than Admiral. Cheap quotes are one thing but level of service and protection is also important. I know that a £285 quote isn't going to include like for like mod cover and legal expenses but it does show that there was room for a better price with someone somewhere so I found a bit of time and decided to speak to the specialists. My first session of form-filling and a (chase) call to another of STOC's recommended Insurers was a fruitless exercise. Before even running a quote they told me that if I'd been quoted £400 to insure a MK7 ST by someone else, that I should snap their arm off as they'd be unable to come close to that considering my age and the required mileage (soon to be 30 and 12k) and that "The MK7 ST is the most stolen car they'd ever insured!", sure the guy was polite and made pleasant conversation even telling me he has a MK7 himself (wonder who he’s insured with?!), but with that attitude to business they shan’t be hearing from me again! Undeterred and following the other glowing reviews on here and elsewhere, I filled in my details with Chris Knott. Later I got a call back from Ian and the difference was night and day. He was incredibly helpful as we went through all the details, he even seemed surprised that I'd been asked to declare the optional extras and even the trivial bits like a gearknob with Admiral but said for peace of mind he'd list them on their system despite it having no weighting on the quote. Eventually he came back with a quote of £355, I was more than happy with that (just for the fact it includes like for like cover alone). He even made a note to allow me to add the private plate that my wife wants to buy me for my birthday (a few days after my renewal) without any admin fees. Totally satisfied not only do I feel confident that my car is properly covered (always a grey area with mainstream insurers and modded cars) but I've saved money (even compared to last year's premium) and will definitely be giving them a call when the wife's renewal is due in November!" BLiTZ, Fiesta ST Owners Club

Knowing that it was due in March, I waited for my renewal notice to arrive, then called both CKI and ****. CKI were very fast with their quote and it instantly beat my renewal." Blackie_X, GT86/BRZ Owners Club "I use Chris Knott for my supercharged V8 400bhp Jag and pay less than your S*** quote and I live in Birmingham." payno, BimmerForums "A happy customer. I recently contacted Chris Knott for the first time. The premium quoted was £200 less than what my existing insurer wanted. I had both cars insured with the existing company on separate policies, so there was no reward for loyalty. I went ahead and insured the Z4 through Chris Knott. The process was handled by a lady called Kim who was pleasant and relaxed throughout and did not use hard sell tactics. Everything was processed promptly before my existing policy expired. I am a satisfied customer." oldgit, Z4 Forum "I'm into my 2nd year with them and have no complaints." Mr Tidy, Z4 Forum

Test Drives Unlimited, GT86/BRZ Drivers Club "I have just changed my insurance over to Chris Knott. Had been with my previous insurer for 5 years. Chris Knott knocked £50 off my renewal which my old insurer wouldn't price match. Great customer service from Tabitha who provided my quote then Ian who processed the quote when I went ahead. Would recommend to anyone to give these guys a try." J306TD, BimmerForums "Good people to deal with." Hamish M, TrustPilot "Very helpful. My phone call was answered quickly and I didn't have to go through too much button pressing!" Jill T, TrustPilot "Kim was excellent, honest and beat the best quote I got online. So far would really recommend these guys, better than all the other 'performance friendly' insurers I tried."

Surinder K, TrustPilot "Very happy so far." Nigel T, TrustPilot "Very friendly and all paperwork seamed straightforward, the price was competitive too, with a saving on my renewal quote."
